Save A Heart Save A Mind creates effective and inventive services to help children, teenagers, and young adults to learn how to address violence and abuse in a proactive way.
—Violence impacts young people of all ages and backgrounds. From those who live in safe stable homes to those who live on the streets. This includes school-age children who witness violence or are in an abusive home and see violence in the media. We also target those who have or have had exposure to gang violence, bullies, homelessness, and abrasive, dangerous street-involvement. We create a positive role model experience that is not currently there. Helping those leading lives filled with violence, danger, and few opportunities toward something better.
Save A Heart Save A Mind, reaches young people whether they’re in the schools or on the streets and in their communities. Our youth programs prove immediate practical assistance to youth in need while providing a stable non-judgmental setting to address and explore issues of violence.
